Calling all pizza lovers! This Tuesday, buzzed about D.C. joint &pizza will be debuting in Manhattan and their opening day promotion is pretty wild. Besides a summertime DJ residency and local partnerships with the likes of Luke’s Lobster, Mike’s Hot Honey, and Fine & Raw, the sure to be hot spot is offering free ampersand tattoos to the first 22 guests in line who request them. If you're daring enough, you'll receive transportation to the acclaimed First Class Tattoos and, once inked, free oblong pies for a full year.
Apparently, you'll be in cool company. Over 80 people (including employees and loyal customers) boast the &pizza ink, a tradition that started when one worker wanted a tat of the symbol and the company actually paid for it. According to CEO, creative director and co-founder Michael Lastoria, "&pizza is a different kind of pizza shop, where experience is the focal point and we strive to cultivate both community and creativity," so it's no wonder the chain has such a cult following.
Cheesy goodness and a new skin accessory with an amazing backstory? Count us in.
